Medical Wire & Equipment is celebrating its 60th trading anniversary this year, with a series of exhibitions and events during the remainder of 2012. MWE was created in 1952 and today is acknowledged as being the market leader in its field.

Stanley Broggio, the founder of MWE, started the company is his own garden shed with the production of wire swabs and general laboratory components. The company quickly went from strength to strength and moved to new premises during the 1960’s to accommodate the production of a growing range - which included the world’s first range of individually packed sterile swabs. In the early 1970’s the ground breaking innovation of the Transwab® revolutionised the industry; an innovation which is still heralded as the industry standard across the globe.

MWE have continued to trade and grow successfully throughout the decades, despite economic downturn and a changing market. Managing Director David Ellis attributes MWE continued success to the deep routed ethos of innovation, quality, service and reliability. “The team at MWE pride themselves on constantly striving to produce the very best pre analytical devices on the market. We undertake rigorous research and development to ensure we are always one step ahead of our competitors. We also place a great deal of emphasis on delivering the very best possible customer care, technical support and documentation – a valuable addition to our services which is appreciated by our global distributers and direct customers alike.”

Today MWE produces in excess of 100 million medical devices per annum, and has an extensive network of global distributers working on their behalf. Their Transwab® range is recognised as the market leading product of choice and their portfolio of products and prestigious clients continues to grow.
